Parish History

ORMSBY (St. Margaret), a parish, in the East and West Flegg incorporation, hundred of East Flegg, E. division of Norfolk, 5 miles (N. by W.) from Yarmouth. The living is a discharged vicarage, with that of St. Michael and that of Scratby. TheBaptists and Wesleyans have places of worship. [1]


Ormesby St Margaret with Scratby is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the Diocese of Norwich. The Ecclesiastical parish was created about 1600 from the Ancient parishes of Ormesby St Andrew Ancient Parish and Ormesby St Peter Ancient Parish. The parish includes Scratby and California.

California owes its name to the discovery of some 16th-century gold coins on the beach in 1848, at a time when the California gold rush had captured the attention of the world.

Thomas Webster (1631-1715), who was born in Ormesby St. Margaret and eventually settled in New Hampshire, was the great-great-grandfather of the prominent 19th Century American politician Daniel Webster.

Scratby Hall, the country house of John Ramey, was occupied by his daughter, the Dowager Countess of Home, until her death in 1814. The house was originally built by John Fisher, Esq. John Ramey, Esq., an attorney, then barrister, retired to Scratby Hall, where he died in 1796. From 1949 to the mid 1980's, the home and estate served as Duncan Hall School.

A Norman church stood on the site but extensive restoration in the 1860's has produced the present church.

Ormesby St Margaret should not be mistaken for the village of Ormesby St Michael, Norfolk which neighbours it to the west.
